It sure looks like the Galaxy S11 will come with a revolutionary new camera

While Apple has been dominating headlines in recent weeks for its camera innovations for the iPhone 11 line, a recent rumor suggests that a truly revolutionary change may be coming to Samsung’s next camera. In late September, South Korean publication The Elec reported that the Galaxy S11 would be the first phone from Samsung to feature a camera capable of 5x optical zoom. Now even more evidence has been uncovered to support that claim.

On Sunday, The Elec returned with a new report, claiming that Korean test socket manufacturer MecaTech will supply Samsung with test sockets for the rumored periscope camera of the Galaxy S11. The Elec notes that the sockets are used to make “last-minute” checks, which would seem to imply that Samsung has already finalized the decision to use these camera modules for the version of the Galaxy S11 that will ship to consumers.
